Baker tuned up for this week’s Greater Oregon League district wrestling tournament with a victory at the annual Pine-Eagle tournament Saturday at Halfway.

The Bulldogs finished the 14-team tournament with 171 points, edging Grant Union by 5.5 points.

“Everybody wrestled well. It was a good, successful weekend for us,” said Baker coach Dee Gorrell.

“The young kids stepped up again. It was a nice way to end the regular season. Now it’s time to gear up for district. The kids are peaking at the right time.”

The Bulldogs earned three individual championships — Andrew Porter at 130 pounds, Andrew Gettle at 145, and Ted Shaw at 189.

Gorrell said the top match of the tournament was Gettle’s title match against former Bulldog Grant Marcum of Joseph. Gettle won the match 4-2.

“Two highlight matches for us were Gettle beating Marcum and Shaw beating Ethan Kowing of Grant Union at 189,” Gorrell said.

Parker Warner (125) finished second; Matt Seal (125), Lane Gray (160) and Jake Shukle (215) third; Brandon Zunino (140), Anthony Constantine (152) and Paul Johnson (215) fourth; Lane Zacharias (145) and Joe Kenworthy (160) fifth; and Miguel Kitch (119), and Bryce Waldron (189) sixth.

Baker will travel to Mac-Hi Friday and Saturday for the GOL district meet.

Dennis leads Spartans

Kyle Dennis led Pine-Eagle with a win at 171 pounds.

Devon Thorn (112) was second, Cody Powell (140) third, Jesse Lawrence (130) fourth, Richie Gonzales (189) fifth, and Lucas Powell (275) sixth.

Nathan Tanaka (152), Vern Garrett (189) and Daniel Minarich (215) also wrestled for the Spartans.

Pine-Eagle will host its district meet Friday and Saturday at Halfway.

The rest of the field

Following Baker and Grant Union in the team standings were Crane (121), Wallowa (111), Joseph (96), Pine-Eagle (94), Enterprise (75), Vale (67.5), Elgin (61), Adrian (57), Imbler (45.5), Union (17), Midvale (11), and Cambridge (0).
